Wait times can be long in the summer to sit on the deck yet worth the wait. Food choices are familiar with occasional changes to the menu. Happy hour menu is satisfying. Frannie's Salad is my go to.

My wife and I had a most enjoyable dining experience. The food was excellent and our server, Jesse, was extremely attentive and pleasant. The next morning, I discovered that I had left my hat at the restaraunt. I called, and Holly not only located my hat, but volunteered to personally drop by the post office to mail it to Missouri....

We love the steak bites and waffle fries. It's such a great value at happy hour. We had prompt, friendly service and the food was hot and tasty! What more can you ask for?

The menu has something for everyone. Food ids always very good and the prices are fair. During the summer this places rocks due to the outside deck right on lake Minnetonka.

By far the best service I've had out of every restaurant I have ate at. Nikki was our waitress and she took very good care of us. Could not have asked for a better experience here. The food was great too. Thanks again Nikki for the best service ever.

Maynard's is right on Lake Minnetonka. You can eat inside and outside on either the deck or on the dock. It's our family favorite for get together or celebrations. It has a widely varied menu from salads, sandwiches, burgers and entrees.

Had lunch here. Food was very good and rather reasonable. The Reuben was delicious. The view of the lake, even snow covered was delightful. Will be back when visiting area again.

Took daughter and my 2 little grandsons out for lunch. Everything was wonderful. Had firecracker shrimp and smoked chicken panini. Very good. And they were very good with children. Wouldnt recommend 2yrs olds during busy time.
